Here’s a great gift for LEGO fans young or old. Brickles Shop makes custom name signs which feature LEGO-compatible studs on top. They’re available in a variety of colors and from 1 to 12 letters – though longer names can get quite spendy since they’re 3D printed. More styles here.

LEGO Playing Card Gun

LEGO Playing Card Gun

While it’s not as powerful or accurate as Mark Rober’s motorized playing card thrower, Brick Experiment Channel’s version is still pretty sweet, and was built entirely using LEGO components, giving it double the geek cred. Now we want him to build a version that fires cash… or minifigs.

LEGO Concrete Casting

LEGO Concrete Casting

LEGO bricks are great for building all kinds of things, but did you know you could use them as a mold for casting concrete? Neither did we. HomeMadeModern shows us a couple of techniques – one in which the blocks are used as a direct mold, and the other where the bricks are covered in silicone, which becomes the mold.

The Exterminator

LEGO Buildable Ruler

LEGO Buildable Ruler

In the world of LEGO, you can’t just buy stuff that’s already made, right? It’s not official unless you snap some pieces together, like this 12″ ruler that’s made up from official LEGO plates and bricks. After you assemble it, you can measure stuff, or just snap more bricks on top.

LEGO Robot GBC Module

LEGO Robot GBC Module

We’re surprised that LEGO machine expert JK Brickworks has never built a Great Ball Contraption module before, but his first one definitely lives up to his standards. Watch as four tiny LEGO robots work along an assembly line, each passing a ball to the next to move it down the line. It also appears to work as a hypnosis device.
